ID / Identity & Address Checks

These days establishing that a candidate is who they say they are is more important than ever before. Although cases of presenting a false identity are seldom, free movement throughout Europe and an increase in migrant workers has seen a rise in those using false documentation.

Security Watchdog will verify your candidate’s identity, address and eligibility to work in the UK. Using state-of-the-art document verification technology and experts in document examination we can check the authenticity of Passport and identity documents and where appropriate, visa entitlement documents.

Address and contact details are then verified against the UK electoral roll, official online directories and through supporting utility bills for instances of non-registration.

As an additional check we can also check the Mortality Register to see if someone has stolen the identity of a deceased person that closely matches their date of birth.
